Currently not using any chat apps since it seems to stress me out no matter what I do, but you are more than welcome to note or e-mail me for long-form convos, & I'll try to respond within a day <3

Trades/Requests: Only when I specifically make a journal about it, sorry. :'c
Art Raffles: per +100 watchers
Adoptables: occasionally. random designs, no associated lore or backstory, very flexible. c:
Commissions: Open for small pixel orders! <3
Frequently Posts: pixel art, fanart, birds (& bird blobs) I've also been trying to boost people's commissions, so that will probably show up via status posts a lot.


COMMISSION QUEUE!

Unpaid To-Dos
*Raffle Prizes for JemiDove [Due: 03/01]
Thought now would be a good time, since my queue is more or less empty at the moment:
Main prices are staying the same!  However, I've received several suggestions from customers about my batch discounts being a little drastic.  So, I'll just be bumping those up a little.  You'll still be saving money if you decide to order a batch of a particular kind of commission--just not quiiite so much money as before.  ;P  

Anyway, the new batch prices will be:
Tinies: $2/200pts for each additional sprite
50x50: $6/600pts for each additional sprite
100x100: $8/800pts for each additional sprite


(This of course will only apply to orders made *after* this journal--anyone still on hold won't have to change anything.)





COMMISSION INFO


PRICING

**$3/300pts for Tiny sprites
  •   $2 for each additional character if placing a batch order
    • customers will receive the sprite at 100% zoom and an additional larger zoom. different "zoom sizes" may be requested at no additional charge
**$8/800pts for 50x50 static icons
  • $6 for each additional if placing a batch order
    • customers will receive the sprite at 100% zoom and an additional larger zoom. different "zoom sizes" may be requested at no additional charge
**$12/1200pts for large humanoid/bipedal static sprites, or portrait
  • $15/1500pts for animal or other non-bipedal characters 
    • $8 for each additional character if placing a batch order (applies to all 100x100 categories)
    • customers will receive the sprite at 100% zoom and an additional larger zoom. different "zoom sizes" may be requested at no additional charge
**$20 for Profile Portrait ($25 for full color)
  • $15 for each additional if placing a batch order (for both inks & full color)

IMPORTANT INFO / TERMS OF SERVICE

  • srsaraco@gmail.com is most reliable contact! I'll check notes if I see them, but dA's note system has been very unreliable for me in the past. :/
  • payment required first
    • if placing a batch order, you are allowed to pay for a piece at a time, or all at once. whichever's easier!
      • just keep in mind that i won't start on the other pieces of a batch order until they're paid for.
    • Paypal is preferred for batch orders, but I can set up a custom point payment widget if you'd really like to make a batch order & can only pay with points. 
  • if using Paypal, please wait for me to send you an invoice (which means I'll need your paypal e-mail)! 
  • No real people or fanart subjects, UNLESS the fanart fits under one of these loopholes:
    • custom video game character
    • custom browser game character/avatar
    • fakemon/fusions, or other fan characters
    • if the fanart subject only takes up a small percentage of the whole image 
    • adoptables, IF you bought ownership of it & have permission from the original artist to commission art of the adoptable
  • SFW only
    • would also like to avoid overt political/religious symbolism
  • if I ever alter prices, it will not affect orders already in the queue
  • yes, you may post the commissions elsewhere or use them as avatars--all i ask is proper credit or a link to my page. :) (Smile)
    • for avatar use on any site, just put the credit somewhere visible on your profile or signature.
  • I will always ask for permission before uploading! If my uploads appear to be skipping over orders in the queue, the commissioner probably requested that they be kept private.

  • Turnaround stuff:

    • orders will be completed within roughly 1 day of me telling you that i'm starting your order (**unless it's a batch order, see 2nd sub-bullet)
      • so, NOT necessarily within 24 hours of placing your order! depends on where you fall in the queue.
      • in some cases, i may just give you a specified time (for instance, "i should have this done tomorrow evening")
      • **for batch orders, allow an additional 24hrs for each additional piece ((possibly sooner if i'm on a roll!))
        • you may choose whether or not you'd like to receive them as they're completed, or all at once
      • If your slot falls on a weekend, the estimated delivery date will generally be pushed to Monday (plus however many days, if your order is a batch). It's possible that I can get some work done on a weekend, but since weekends are generally less predictable, I don't include them in estimated delivery times.
    • Will maintain a maximum queue of 10 slots at a time (1 slot=1 day), which means that the last order on the queue should still be done within 2 weeks, as long as my personal life isn't crazy
      • orders will be added to the queue in order of payment
        • You may pay in advance to reserve a spot, if you like. (For instance, if you know what kind of order you'd like, but haven't decided on the subject, or don't have finalized references for the subject yet. I'll begin work on a reserved order once the proper references are provided.)
      • each piece of a batch will take up 1 spot on the queue (ex: 4-piece batch, 4 slots)
        • I may allow one or two spots of overflow if queue is full, so feel free to ask about small orders, even if the 10 main slots are taken.
      • if my personal life is causing delays, i will let you know! 
        • if you haven't heard from me in over 2 weeks, assume that something pretty bad happened to me! :/
        • Refunds may be negotiated in the event of excessive delays, as long as I am alive enough to negotiate them. :P (Lick)
  • I reserve the right to decline business with suspicious/untrusted identities! If your online identity seems suspiciously empty/impersonal, or if I've found reports of payment problems associated with your identity, I may decline your order. I'm sad that this rule is necessary at all, but unfortunately the internet is still full of scammers. :( (Sad) Hopefully it won't end up being an issue! <3
